Coding independent media description code points
This working draft for a new International Standard defines various code points and fields that establish properties of a video (or still image) representation and are independent of the compression encoding and bit rate. These properties may describe the appropriate interpretation of decoded data or may, similarly, describe the characteristics of such a signal before the signal is compressed by an encoder that is suitable for compressing such an input signal.
This proposed draft amendment provides additional video code points for ISO/IEC 23001-8. The additional video code points enable the expression of additional types of transfer characteristics, colour primaries, and matrix coefficients that are expected to become commonly used for future video applications.
This document specifies additional video code points for ISO/IEC 23001-8. The additional video code points include the specification of sample aspect ratio indication and the specification of additional transfer functions, colour primaries, and matrix coefficients.
